MIT engineers have invented a bubble-wrapped, sponge-like device that soaks up natural sunlight and heats water to boiling temperatures, generating steam through its pores.
Metal-organic frameworks provide a new platform for solving the structure of hard-to-study samples.
New genome sequences target next generation of yeasts with improved biotech uses.
08.24.16 Three large neutrino experiments – PROSPECT and COHERENT, both based at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee, and the Majorana Collaboration based at the Sanford Underground Research Facility in South Dakota – are gearing up with researchers from many institutions to advance our understanding of neutrino physics.
08.22.16 Using computer simulations at the Princeton Plasma Physics Lab, researchers discovered conditions that explains the phenomenon of chirping – a wave in plasma that breaks from a single note into rapidly changing notes - and may help to optimize the design of fusion energy plants in the future.
08.22.16 Under the mentorship of Bill Morse in the Physics Department, Metodiev has worked for the past four years on the Muon g-2 experiment, studying the properties of muons, tiny subatomic particles that exist for only 2.2 millionths of a second.
Plopped into water, a tiny device triggers the formation of chemicals that kill microbes in minutes. Read More
Images reveal battery materials' chemical reactions in five dimensions – 3D space plus time and energy. Read More
Brookhaven Lab scientists discover a way to create billionth-of-a-meter structures that snap together in complex patterns with unprecedented efficiency. Read More
Rice University physicists probe photon-electron interactions in vacuum cavity experiments which could help advance technologies like quantum computers and communications by revealing new phenomena to those who study cavity quantum electrodynamics and condensed matter physics.
A study from scientists on the Florida campus of The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) has now filled in a missing piece of the evolutionary puzzle, determining a previously unknown structure of a family of proteins that are key to making these compounds.
In a new paper, University of California, Riverside theoretical physicist Flip Tanedo and his collaborators have made new progress towards unravelling a mystery in the beryllium nucleus that may be evidence for a fifth force of nature.
